New project before passing

The popular streaming service Hulu was set to soon premiere the Seth Rogen-produced TV series titled "Future Man." The series stars Josh Hutcherson, Eliza Coupe, Ed Begley Jr., and the late Glenne Headly. The show is supposed to air 13 episodes in its debut.

The death of Headly has fans wondering what the production crew of "Future Man" will do in terms of handling her character. Haley Joel Osment told Just Jared, that Glenne's character, who played Josh Hutcherson's mother, will not be replaced. "They'll find a way to deal with that character's absence, but certainly for us who knew her from Season 1 and may have known her before, it's going to be a really sad, empty space on the show that she's not there anymore," Osment said.
